These are very nice stones. They make an excellent addition to any piece. The smooth surface feels good in the hands, around the wrist, or around the neck. They are however, more like a dark teal than the light blue that is pictured, but still pretty.
LOVE the blues in these beads. Look at the color in the picture, then imagine a bit darker blue, then this is what you'll get. Definitely NOT disappointed with these! Colors ranging from your light baby blues to sapphires. You'll also get a light tan to a light brown mixed in. Nice earthy looking color mixture.
Love this color for jewelry
Love the shades of blue in these beads. I have some large apatite beads I purchased here and plan to use the two blue colors together for necklaces.
